Sorry to have been off line recently; technical updates have been happening. All in an effort to give you a better Kaiser blog experience.
I wanted to quickly note that the New York Times ran an AP article last week revealing that the health care fraud prosecutions are continuing. Thirty more people have been rounded up and arrested, allegedly for committing Medicare Fraud.
The article says that doctors were giving “arthritis kits” that consisted of heating pads and braces. And that was just for the lucky ones who got a kit.
Apparently Eric Holder and Kathleen Sebelius remain eager to prosecute health care providers.
If you have questions about how federal criminal charges are different than state criminal charges, please visit this page on Maryland federal criminal charges or Washington DC federal criminal charges.
